Denture Realignment

04/19/2007

Question:

I recently had my upper denture realigned. My teeth now look crooked. The two front teeth appear to be off to the left and the notch at the top of the gum is not aligned between my two front teeth. Could this happen from a realignment or was the denture like this from the start?

Answer:

The test of whether or not the denture was like that or occurred after the reline would be if all of your tooth contacts have remained the same. If they are the same, chances are your denture was like that. If your bite is different, the reline probably caused a change.
